Prize Deductions

Prize payouts at Lotto Simple

Lotto Simple replicates the prize tier structure of official lotteries. When you win a bet entitling you to a lottery prize, your prize will be an amount equivalent to the net pay amount of the corresponding prize tier of the official underlying lottery. Your winnings will be the same as if you had won your prize in the draw of the underlying lottery.

As the net pay amount of winnings is dependent on the number of winning bets/underlying lottery tickets, and each lottery’s prize payout structure, it may be different from the advertised prize amounts shown on our site.

At Lotto Simple, jackpot winnings are paid out as a lump sum cash payment. Lotto Simple takes no commission on lottery prizes.

Lotteries with no prize deductions

In some countries, no taxes are deducted from lottery prizes and in these cases, Lotto Simple also does not make any deductions of taxes or fees. Prizes awarded in the lotteries below are the same as the official lottery's announced prizes.
